Electric Motors in Environmental Conditions

In the selection of electric motors several factors will be decisive. The importance of these factors depends on the use to which the engine will be subject and the possibilities of the investor, namely: Power supply; Environmental conditions; Requirements of cargo and conditions of service; Consumption and Maintenance.

The operating temperature must be considered when using sensitive electronic equipment or when the ambient temperature is not at 40 ° C or when the environment is sensitive to the heat dissipation of the electric motor. Additional cooling mechanisms may be installed to counteract overheating of the engine or the surrounding environment.

Corrosion protection should be considered in environments where the electric motor is exposed to radiation, dust or hazardous substances that could degrade the engine. Proper motor housing and materials may be selected to provide protection against contamination.

Water protection should be considered when an engine is to be exposed to water, or even when in storage. Protection levels range from minimal vertical drip protection to full submersion under pressure.
